Quirky story about a young Italian-American woman from Revere (outside Boston) with a strong prayer life who believes that God has asked her to become a priest, despite long Catholic tradition against this. Simple plot, engagingly written and a thoughtful presentation of how she arrives at her understanding of God's wish for her ... and what happens when she tries, within the Catholic tradition, to act on it. Gets well beyond stereotypes of priests.
I'm not Catholic; I believe in a higher power but not an entity, and I really enjoyed the implicit and explicit discussion of what a spiritual life might look like. It might be considered a discussion of the difference between religion and faith.

I appreciate a book about beautiful faith. Deep prayer, yearning for a relationship with God. For those who understand why Jesus came to earth the last page will be a disappointment. Until that moment I was highly engaged. At the end I was left puzzled with the author's choice. Not necessary, already been done.
